Description: South Fin Grill is the premier fine-dining restaurant in Staten Island, offering a unique combination of delectable food, exquisite decor and breath-taking views. Our menu consists a variety of delicious grilled seafood, steaks and international dishes. Our exotic backdrop is perfect backdrop for a perfect night-out. If you prefer dining accompanied by an ocean breeze, our Ocean Deck is the place for you. The new custom built canopy has created the perfect setting for our guests and blends seamlessly with the beautiful panoramic views of the ocean and bridge. It has not only added all weather protection for our patrons, but with whirling fans and lighted globes added a stylish ambiance to an already perfect dining experience. The Fin Lounge is the perfect setting for enjoying our superior martinis and signature specialty cocktails and live entertainment. Closes during Winter

I thought the experience at South Fin was absolutely delightful! I enjoyed the food immensely ... felt the menu was varied yet small! The views ... NIGHT & DAY ... are exceptional! I would recommend to anyone! Business or Pleasure ...

For an attractive place in an ideal setting -- gorgeous water views -- South Fin was a huge disappointment. We picked South Fin for a family gathering earlier this week because its fish, seafood and steaks allegedly would work with everyone's diets. However the menu selection was surprisingly limited and everything came seasoned or sauced or oversalted. Appetizers/salads/raw bar were quite good. But main courses were not. Mains ordered 'simply grilled' came seasoned and salted -- either the waiter didn't bother to tell the kitchen or the kitchen was unresponsive and didn't care. At those prices (appet. $8-$12; main courses $20-$39) this is unacceptable. Also, South Fin provided the SLOWEST service I've had in a long time. We didn't order dessert because everything else took too long, and life is just too short to wait a long time for an uninspired, overpriced dessert. The final insult -- my husband got sick from his swordfish later that evening. Instead of going South Fin Grill again, I'd prefer to either go elsewhere, or go hungry. Both are better choices.

Great atmosphere but service is seriously lacking. Menu is limited and should offer more, especially for outside seating

We have been at this restaurant several times. The place is a bit pricey, but it has nice outdoor space and the views are great. The drinks are very good and most of the food is good as well. The service has been consistently very good. The restaurant is also very nice inside. Located on the boardwalk with view of the water.
